Porsche‘s iconic 911 model has reached a historic milestone today with the unveiling of its 1,000,000th unit ever made. For the historic achievement, the Porsche 911 Carrera S gets modeled after one of the first 911s ever built — Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche’s personal company car. Covered in an Irish Green paint, the exterior gets custom Exclusive updates while the interior of the car is covered in leather seats with inserts finished in the original 1964 houndstooth pattern. Further harking back to the first 911, the instrument trim is finished in silver and a ’60s version of the Porsche crest is prominently fitted on the steering wheel and trunk. “1,000,000” branding can be seen all across the car’s design on the gauge pod, b-pillar and passenger-side dashboard.

In terms of performance the engine is the Carrera S’s twin-turbo flat-six with a Powerkit upgrade which churns out 450 horsepower via a seven-speed manual transmission. Twenty-inch wheels harken back to the iconic Fuchs wheels of the 911 and puts all that power onto pavement.

The 1,000,000th Porsche 911 will partake in a global tour, drives in the U.S., runs at the Nürburgring and other iconic locations before taking up a permanent residence at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Porsche once said, “The last car ever built will be a sports car,” and current Porsche CEO Oliver Blume managed to set the bar even higher saying today that “the last car ever built will be a Porsche 911.”

It’s worth noting that the 911 saw its highest production year in 2007 with about 37,000 units made and that 70% of all 911s ever built are still on the road.

Check out the video above and take a look at the top five Porsche Exclusive models.
